STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:

  • Use Corrugated Cardboard and pattern paper to cut a tag with size approx. 6"x3.5" - I used Sizzix Tag & Bookplate Die.
  • Stitch the top part of the pattern paper tag. Stamps the rest of the edges and then distress them.
  • Remove a 1" strip from the bottom part and glue the paper tag on top of the cardboard one.
  • Take your Almanac paper pad and cut out the alphas for the word "joy" and "winter", brackets, the strip underneath the brackets, the tiny butterfly and the piano keyboard.
  • Take three of the canvas banners and apply puffy paint on the edges. Use the heat tool to make the paint pop up.
  • Connect the banners with one of the chains from the Vintage Trinkets and adhere on the tag. Add the letters "j,o,y" on each banner and then add the word "winter" on the top right side of the banner.



  • Glue the piano keyboard on the bottom part of the tag and begin with decorating - adding the flowers and pearl crystals.
  • Stamp the bird on a leftover piece of  pattern paper and fussy cut it. Adhere it on the tag using a foam pad.
  • Decorate with the brackets and the tiny butterfly.
  • Add the small strip on the right side of the tag - right beside the white bloom.
  • As a final touch add the clips on top of the tag.


Easy, right?
Have fun in creating and thanks for being with me today!

Have a great weekend!
Hugs,
